Growin' Up


Paths we take
Choices we make
Paths we take alone
Choices we make on our own

We all grow up and learn
We all take different turns
Turns in our path of life
Turns that may lead to strife

Problems we go through
Problems exist in other lives too
Having problems are not wrond
Having problems don't stay forever long

Conflicts cause growth in many ways
Lessons we learn will always stay
Conflicts we gain as life goes on
Lessons we learn, makes us so strong

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
